Heay Draky! It's Noreen! I remember you.
Most of the guys we used to play with are gone, but there are still a lot of good people out there. I don't play anymore, mainly because of having a personal life (married and working on a master's degree), but there are still a lot of fun things to do. DRG's are now one of the most desired DD classes out there, unlike when you played (though they should have been! >( ), and a million other things have changed.
If you come back to ffxi, remember to have fun. :)
Everyone has it within them to say "This I am today. This I shall be tomorrow." The wish, however, must be implemented by deeds.
